How old is he? Did he serve in the military and, if so, when?

Neither is any of my business but since there IS another thread on the CMP and Garands and Carbines.... :)

Maybe one or more good books on safaris on the Dark Continent

Mike.



My old man served many years ago but only for a couple years and had to come back to the states to take care of my grandma. He doesnt seem to like to read all that much, he is just a man that has worked hard his entire life and I am more than happy to be a son to a man that tought me so much in life!



Thanks for your reply though brother! Much appreciated.

Tigs. Man thanks for the kind words. To be honest my father and I never really told one another we loved eachother until I left AZ. to come up here to Washington a few months back. We actually saw one another cry that day. If I could give him a hug brother man I would, but my arms just cant reach that far this time around
I am sorry to hear about your father my friend, all we can do when we lose a father/mother/family is reflect on all those good memories and that we will all meet again one day in another life/world!!!



Have an awesome Thanksgiving and holidays with you and yours brother!!!!

My dad loves the back massaging chair I got him. Sometimes practical outweighs flash-bang :wink:

I am not sure what to tell you finalfusion. My dad and I MAY speak once a year. We have not been very close for years. It is too bad and I am very envious of guys that are close to your dads.

Birthday Present

Final Fusion,



My suggestion would be to sit down and write your father a letter telling him that you are very proud of him, and the reasons why. Be sure to thank him for being a great dad and mail that letter to him, rather than sending him a store bought birthday card. On his birthday, make arrangements to spend the day with him, doing the things he enjoys. Show an interest and engage him. You might discover things he wants that can't be bought with money, but can easily be purchased with time shared between the two of you.

Ron.



I know were you are coming from. To be honest, my father and I did not become close until we started working together. But through the work, we got the chance to become friends and get to know one another. So now its the hard part of showing my appreciation to have him as a father. he has tought me alot over the past several years, and I owe it to him to show that I valued all of it!!!



Thanks for replying brother!

I am thinking both of your suggestions are it!! Might even pick myself up one
But I am going with the back massager because like brother Morgan, my father has went through a few major back surgeries a year or so ago. Also he still feels pain every day. So I am thinking I am going to invest in a medium quality/$100 messager he can keep in his work truck!



Thanks for all your support fellas, its always appreciated!!!!
